William H. Macy has been a phenomenal actor going all the way back to Fargo and through films like Magnolia and up to his recent starring role on Showtime's Shameless. The guy has worked with great filmmakers and actors for years and now has put those talents behind the camera for the first time. Macy's directorial debut, Rudderless, has premiered it's first trailer and the movie looks pretty damn good. Starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne, and Macy's wife »

This is the Pure Movies review of God's Pocket, directed by John Slattery and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, Eddie Marsan and John Turturro. It’s about Philip Seymour Hoffman. Like Heath Ledger films after he was gone, Hoffman films will continue to trickle out, and we will greedily and mournfully await and consume, like the last air pocket in a slowing sinking ship, or watching that last West African Black Rhino’s troubled pregnancy; we didn’t know how precious they were until they became profoundly finite. This was a fine and sturdy Philip Seymour Hoffman role, but the film is not a landmark of his career, like Synecdoche, New York or Magnolia or Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. Not his fault. »

Slouched in the front row of the labyrinth Theater Company's performance space in New York's West Village last May, Philip Seymour Hoffman was his typical focused, superdisciplined self. In the intimate 90-seat theater, Hoffman – always dressed in one or another of his seemingly interchangeable baggy pants and sweaters – was relentlessly pushing the cast and crew of the play he was directing, »
It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery‘s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every Psh film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years. »

The worst part of being a celebrity, undoubtedly, must be family reunions. All those cousins coming out of the woodwork, asking you to pass along their script or snag an autograph or even help Aunt Agatha buy that new hot tub that she desperately needs. Then there are those happy few stars who don't have to face this problem. Because their cousins are famous, too. In honor of Cousins Day - July 24, to be exact - here are several celebrity cousins who don't have to worry about being the only famous person at their family reunion. Jenny McCarthy and Melissa »

Hercules might be a legendary warrior, but Lucy’s brain capacity will likely prove too formidable a foe for the Greek demigod at the box office. The Scarlett Johansson-led action film looks poised to ravage Dwayne Johnson’s sword-and-sandals epic as both debut on 3,000+ screens this weekend.
Rob Reiner’s And So It Goes, starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas also opens in 1,800 theaters, which could possibly break the top five with $8 million, closing out a quiet and struggling July at the box office before Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy arrives next weekend.
Here’s how things might play out. »

Think you're all that Telluride? Feeling confident in your slate Venice? Fighting for your premiere life Toronto? Well, the New York Film Festival has no plans of sitting on the sidelines in the battle for major premieres this fall movie season. On Wednesday, the Film Society of Lincoln Center revealed that David Fincher's "Gone Girl" will open the festival on Sept. 26. Friday evening it was revealed that another highly anticipated film, Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice," will be the event's centerpiece gala. Anderson's first film since 2012's "The Master," "Inherent Vice" is an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel about a detective (Joaquin Phoenix) investigating the disappearance of a former girlfriend in 1970 Los Angeles. The American auteur has recruited an incredible cast including Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon and Anderson's longtime companion, Maya Rudolph. "Vice" is currently scheduled to open in limited release on Dec. »

Our non-interactive, non-cutting edge letters page is back! Here's the latest selection...
So: our first attempts at a letters page didn't go too badly. We're carrying on, then. You're stuck with it. And here is the latest selection.
Again, with apologies to the many letters we've not been able to feature - we will try and keep these to the length of a magazine letters page - here's what you've been writing in to us about.
Find out how to join in the, er, fun yourself down at the bottom...
Den Of Geek & Den Of Geek
I have a query which may not be quite exciting enough for the Letters Page but an answer by email would be appreciated.
Essentially, I was wondering what the differences were between Den Of Geek Us and the normal Den Of Geek website. Are the same articles run on both sites? I presume »
Last night I opened up an article I had earmarked earlier in the day and watched That Moment, the amazingly candid and engaging 72 minute documentary included on the 2000 DVD release of writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson's 1999 epic Magnolia. And I was hit with a wave of nostalgia unlike anything I had felt in quite some time. It might be odd that I would find the fanfare that greeted the 25th anniversary of 1989's Batman to be little more than noise, only to be almost overcome by a 14 year old DVD supplement. But that's what happened. Of course, it probably helps that I watched this doc obsessively upon its release. I was just starting to fall in love not only with film, but with the process of making it, and I must have sat down to watch this thing at least 20 times within my first year of owning the DVD. »

It's still a long road to anyone seeing Paul Thomas Anderson's highly anticipated "Inherent Vice"....or is it? According to Jeffrey Wells over at Hollywood Elsewhere, some folks have managed to be lucky enough to see the film and the feedback has apparently been that it's “brilliant and mesmerizing in an atmospheric, non-linear sort of way”—which is basically what we'd expect from a Thomas Pynchon adaptation. Moreover, there are apparent rumblings that a New York Film Festival premiere could be in the works... Anyway, something to consider while you wait, but in the meantime, this video tribute to PTA's films by Randall Star should at least hold you over. It's nicely cut six minutes going through PTA's catalog, scored with Jon Brion's music from "Magnolia" providing the backdrop along with "Momentum" by Aimee Mann. Watch below. [Frequency] »

If you’re like me, you’ve had the DVD for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Magnolia for over a decade. The film was released 1999 and the DVD arrived a year later. And while it was kind of bare bones in terms of extras, one extra was simply stunning. It’s called That Moment, and is a 72 minute […]

And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that this is not just "Something That Happened." This cannot be "One of Those Things... " This, please, cannot be that. And for what I would like to say, I can't. This Was Not Just A Matter Of Chance. Ohhhh. These strange things happen all the time. So goes the conclusion of the epic, narrated opening to Paul Thomas Anderson's multi-threaded "Magnolia," and it acts as an announcement that what you're about to see will be both ambitious and unique. And indeed, "Magnolia" is a terrific meditation on life's little and big tragedies, regrets, hopes and the sometimes inexplicable things than come our way. But as you might imagine, the over three-hour film required a helluva production to put it together, and the video diary "That Moment" (via Cinephilia & Beyond) takes you through every step of the way.

All it takes is a look at the current stats for Tom Cruise's "Edge Of Tomorrow" to understand that these days, he's a much better sell overseas than he is at home. Domestically, the sci-fi action flick has pocketed a modest $75 million after two weeks in theaters. Abroad? $219 million. To those of you who say Cruise isn't a star anymore, you're simply looking in the wrong direction. Well, perhaps a visit to the Alamo Drafthouse might remind you of the charisma and draw Cruise once had, at last stateside. The indie theater is gearing up to show five Tom Cruise movies in a row, all on 35 mm, on July 27th at the Alamo Ritz in Austin, Texas. Oh, so what are the five movies? Well, the treat here is that they're not saying until you show up, so it could be anything. But this supercut trailer is likely pointing »

Over the course of a career spanning more than 40 years, actor John Lithgow has garnered a large amount of critical and commercial acclaim for a body of work that spans the stage, the small screen, and the big screen, appearing in tv shows such as 3rd Rock from the Sun and Dexter, as well as movies such as Terms of Endearment, Blow Out, The Pelican Brief, and Kinsey. Actor Alfred Molina has similarly gathered a diverse and acclaimed body of work, appearing in movies such as Magnolia, As You Like It, and An Education.

The trailer can be seen below. Sound on Sight was able to »
